38-17: A Well Oiled Machine, Here's Week #12!!!!!

By Amsinger - November 12, 2007


Last week I gloated over a 39-16 picking record and the gloating was for a good cause.

What cause?

My self-esteem.

I followed up that great week #10 performance with another stellar effort, 38-17. Week #12 will be the ultimate challenge for a picking perfectionist like me. So many tough games to call...like Ohio State at Michigan, Kentucky at Georgia, West Virginia at Cincinnati and Boston College at Clemson.

Before we move forward, let's relive my top "hits" and "misses" from week #11.

HITS:

Wisconsin over Michigan: Just because the Wolverines turned things around after the 0-2 start, this is STILL the same team that lost to Appalachain State! The Badgers reminded us of that.

Mississippi State over Alabama: WOW! The pick of the week! Sylvester Croom is challenging Les Miles and Rich Brooks for SEC Coach of the Year!

Michigan State over Purdue: This one was in West Lafayette and the Spartans had just one road victory coming into the game. MSU also ended a 3-game losing streak...great call!!!!

MISSES:

Oklahoma State over Kansas: How many times will I pick against Kansas!!!!!

Kansas State over Nebraska: 73 points!!! Is it enough to keep Callahan's job? HAHAHA!

Houston over Tulsa: Tulsa won 56-7...sorry Tulsa.

Enough with last week, let's get rockin' with Week #12 on "OFF PROMPTER!"

P.S. No funny pics this week, I'm hosting an additional show on the network. Don't have enough time to say hi to my daughter at the moment, so no time for pics either. Sorry! They'll be back next week!!!!

In case you're counting, here's a statistical breakdown of how I'm picking so far this season:

Week #1: 53-17
Week #2: 54-8
Week #3: 47-19
Week #4: 43-17
Week #5: 44-15
Week #6: 31-25 (gross)
Week #7: 37-18
Week #8: 33-23 (disgusting)
Week #9: 34-19 (blah)
Week #10: 39-16 (niiiiiiice!)
Week #11: 38-17 (so consistent)

Overall Record for 2007-08 season: 453-194.
My weekly average is 41-17.

Like I do each and every week, I predict all Division 1A games (otherwise known as the College Football Bowl Subdivision). This blog will carry scores from the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and MAC. On Wednesday, you'll get your full of SEC, Pac Ten, Mountain West, WAC, CUSA and Sun Belt.
